plastic extrusions manufacturersPetro Packaging is one of the leading custom plastic extrusions manufacturers in the industry. Our extrusion expertise was founded during the infancy of the plastics revolution. In the late 1950’s, the Petro family embarked on an industry that was uncharted and relatively unknown at the time. With the development of the Hula Hoop and the garden hose, custom plastic extrusions manufacturers engineered new products that emerged at a dizzying pace. The extrusion process exploded and new thermoplastics were being developed providing unlimited opportunities for almost every industry. The Petro family took advantage of this opportunity, purchasing extrusion equipment and employing the services of the returning veterans of WWII. Self taught and self motivated, the Petro story began.
